Prague is famous for its architecture, stunning views, and intriguing history. But where’s the best place to go when the temperatures soar above 30 and you want to dip your feet into something fresher than sweat in your shoes?
The top 3 Prague summer getaways were chosen by experts on this topic, the fusion sales department.
Our first choice is Zlute Lazne complex. It’s a little paradise right by the river offering a wide range of summer activities like beach volleyball, long boards, paddleboats, table tennis, and more. When your sightseeing day is finished, fresh cocktails and cold beers are waiting for you in a restaurant of your choice, or you can find plentiful beer stands along the promenade. There are tons of them and waiting in line is never an issue. We love it and so will you!

Most places accept ISIC or other student cards for discounts. Bring it with you and don’t forget to use it. I am sure forgetting to show it is the story of most of us.
Entrance fee – 80 czk for the day
Opening hours – Mon/Sun 11am – 12am
Directions – Take tram #3 from Jindrisska (right at fusion) to Dvorce. Walk back towards the direction of the tram and in about one minute, you will reach the main entrance of the complex on your left.
Our second pick is swimming complex Podoli. It’s on the opposite side of the street from Zlute Lazne and is quite large, including outdoor and indoor big swimming pools plus a little one for kiddies, water slide, refreshment bistros, and loads of green to put your tired head down for a blissful nap. You can also lounge in a sun chair if you’re an early riser or lucky enough to find a chair when someone leaves. This is a competitive business! Lastly, a little highlight some of you will enjoy. In the Czech Republic it’s quite common for women to be topless while sunbathing. We’re just sayin’!
Entrance fee – 160czk 8 – 3pm, 120czk 3 – 8pm
Opening hours: Mon/Sun 6am – 8:45pm (indoor pool as well)
Directions – Take tram #3 from Jindrisska (right at fusion) to Kublov. Follow the direction of the tram and after a two-minute walk, you will see a big complex on your left.
If you feel like to experience something more “local,” then go with our last choice, Petynka. Although this option is further from the center, you can still reach Petynka within 25–30 minutes by public transport from fusion. And what’s so special about this place? A swimming pool 50 meters long! That’s pretty special on its own, but when you’re also craving tons of green space with trees for shade, clean water, and an oasis away from the tourist madness, you’ll definitely agree this is a place worth visiting!
Entrance fee – 150czk full day
Opening hours: Mon/Sun – 7am to 9pm
Directions – Take tram #9 from Jindrisska stop (on the opposite side from fusion) to the stop Motol. From Motol take bus 174, or 180 to the Na Petynce stop. From where it is just a few metres walk.
You can rent lockers in all facilities to avoid any disappointment, like extending your vacation due to a stolen passport. Of course, we would like to have you longer, but that may not be your first choice 😉
